i asked about the 2.5 stoker earlier on another thread here and got made fun of. lol. I think it'd be cool to improve the little four banger. sure it might take some bucks, as will any swap, but you wont have to custom make any mounts or anything! bolt right in. definitely subbing. lol.

I guess I don't get the appeal. Let's say you put $2000 into custom decking and machine work, built internals, etc. and you get another 30 HP out of it. Now you're at what, 150HP? Wouldn't it make more sense to take that same money and do a swap for a more stout motor? Not making fun of you or anything, just trying to understand why this would be an option when it seems the payout is inadequate. Other than the "because I can" factor, what's the appeal?

My thinking is, in an emissions state you can get more power without the headache of the smog police (Me).

Im interested as well as I have done MANY 305 > 400 smallblock swaps intentionally to fool the smog boys before I became an inspector (probably still would do it)...
To still have a "2.5L" with 30ish increased HP would be nice. Im still into doing a 5.2L swap, but want to follow this too.

Can the OP post a link to the 505 parts and/or website?

After reading some of the horror stories connected to buying some of the "remanufactured engines" I went on 505 webb site after reading your post and considering purchasing one of their 2.5 stroker engines! I t will just take that much longer to save for it.

The problem is you cannot change the issues the 2.5 has just by bolting stuff on and it in it. For an extra thirty horse put a bottle on it,,,,the result will be the same.
